The conference of American diplomatic officials stationed in the Near East, which concluded in Cairo during the week-end after four days of discussions designed to promote peace and prosperity in the area, voiced the hope that “the present deplorable situation” of Arab displaced persons from Israel “can be corrected,” dispatches received here from the Egyptian capital reported.

The conferees also emphasized that U.S. diplomacy should make every possible effort to achieve a solution of the Palestine problem. (Abdul Rahman Azzam Pasha, secretary-general of the Arab League, in an interview with the New York Times in Cairo was quoted as saying that should an Israel-Transjordan agreement be concluded, it would “violate” the compact of the seven Arab League states, which provides that they act in unison and that they boycott the Jewish state economically and politically.)
